How long do you have to wait before this board can be painted?

Asked by: PontoonEddie
You should buy the boards, and place three pieces of wood or paint sticks on each side and the middle. Add a weight on top and allow the boards to dry. You should wait at least 30 days before painting to make sure all of the chemicals used in treating this wood have dried into the wood. You don't want to paint wet wood.

What is the difference between premium and standard pressure treated lumber?

Asked by: John
Premium is better quality, vs standard is chipped, has holes and knots in the wood. if you are building a deck, the standard is okay for the wooded areas that are not seen, but use premium wood where the wood is noticeable.

removing a stamp

I have purchased 50- 5/4x6x8ft pressure treated lumber boards for my deck. On all of the boards is a manufacturer stamp. I don't mind the stamp if it was on the worse side of the board but on about 25% of the boards the stamp is on the best side. No one wants to see a board on a deck with a manufacturer stamp in plain view. So, is there any way of removing the stamp with out sanding half the board away.
Asked by: pete
If you paint your deck, which you should to keep it protected and sealed, the stamp will not be noticeable. If you prefer keeping it natural, then you could sand it off lightly. it is ink, so it is only a matter of time before the ink will fade away with the sun.

Customer Reviews

5/4 in. x 6 in. x 8 ft. Premium Pressure-Treated Lumber is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from horrible quality for premium wood I visited 2 different Home Depots to purchase this wood to replace some boards on my deck. I literally went through the entire rack of boards, about 100 or so at each store. After wasting about 75 minutes at each store I purchased a total of 13 boards. Seriously? almost all of the boards are cracked, have huge holes and knots in them. This is unacceptable for premium wood. After talking to a employee, he informed me that the reason why the 8 foot boards have such awful quality is because they sit there for months and rarely get replaced with new stock. If you need boards, buy the 10-12 foot boards, as those get much more rotated than these horrible 8 foot boards.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stamps Why are all the deck boards from Home Depot stamped on both SIDES it won't come off and looks bad for a deck. Even staining it bleeds through

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value. No problem selecting the boards i needed. All were straight and dry. Deck looks good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Deserves a negative score I'm in the middle of a deck rebuild. For weeks now it has been hard to find 5/4" boards the same width. While there will always be some variation in width due to differences in how wet or dry the wood, I am consistently coming across boards more than 1/2" different in width. I have built several decks and fences. This is not normal.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Boards were dry and or brittle Most boards were dry and/or brittle, split easily, and at least 3 started splitting in the middle of the board once in-place on the deck within 2 days of being screwed down. I will hand select the boards next time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Incredibly Bad! Will warp to unusable in a week if you don't screw it down. Inside two months it looks like a 10 year old deck. Will shrink both in width and length. Width shrinkage can be as much as 1/2 inch. This is not the fine product that they used to sell. Contractors beware! You will have to replace or be sued. It looks like it is not kiln dried prior to pressure treating resulting in an awful product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wood I wanted to build some platforms to hold some plant pots off the ground next to my deck and I also wanted the platforms to match my deck. This wood looks very nice and was easy to work with. Will be buying again to make a Weber Kettle grill stand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Straight Boards Bought this to a deck under my green house used a wood protection and water just runs off of the boards
